Hi, dear friends,

Have you listened to the latest song My heart belongs to you http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lan ... /content_558663.htm in the column "Popular Songs"?

Here I have got a link to Hayley Westenra 's <Odyssey> [http://hongdou.gxnews.com.cn/forumview.asp?topic_id=1241653%20

If interested, please log on and enjoy the wonderful pieces.

I personall recommend the following compositions:

1> What you never know(你从未知道的事)_a cover from Sarah Brightman(莎拉·布莱曼)

What you never know won't hurt you
What you never know won't lie
What you never know won't desert you
What you never know won't say goodbye

What you never know won't hurt you
What you never know won't lie
What you never know won't desert you
What you never know won't make you cry

I am falling for you
I am falling for you
My heart's torn in two
I am falling for you

What you never know won't hurt you
What you never know won't lie
What you never know won't desert you
What you never know won't make you try

I am falling for you

2> May it be(但愿) _a cover from Enya

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true

You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home
Morning (Darkness has fallen)
Believe and you will find your way
Morning (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow's call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day

When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun
Morning (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Morning ( Darkness has fallen)

A promise lives within you now
A promise lives within you now

3> Prayer(祈祷)_a cover from Secret Garden

Let your arms enfold us
Through the dark of night
Will your angels hold us
Till we see the light

Hush, lay down your troubled mind
The day has vanished and left us behind
And the wind - whispering soft lullabies
Will soothe - so close your eyes

Let your arms enfold us
Through the dark of night
Will your angels hold us
Till we see the light

Sleep, angels will watch over you
And soon beautiful dreams will come true
Can you feel spirits embracing your soul
So dream while secrets of darkness unfold

Let your arms enfold us
Through the dark of night
Will your angels hold us
Till we see the light

4> Both sides now(两面看待)-- lyrics by Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

Now they only block the sun
They rain and  snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

Now it's just another show
And you leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

Now old friends they're acting strange
And they shake their heads
And they say I've changed
Well something's lost but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

5> Never Saw Blue(从未看过这样的蓝)

Today we took a walk up the street,
We picked a flower and climbed a hill above the lake
Secret thoughts, u said aloud,
We watched the faces in the clouds
Until the clouds have blown away
Were we ever somewhere else u know
It's hard to say

I never saw a blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all u have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that

I can't believe
Among the gold I was alone
I didn't know u, I've never seen you, or heard your name
And even now, I'm so amazed it's like a dream
It's like a rainbow, it's like the rain
Some things are the way they are and words just can't explain

I never saw a blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all u have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that before

It feels like now, it feels always,
And it feels like coming home

I never saw a blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all u have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that before

Oh, oh I, I never saw blue like that

6> I Say Grace(我赞美)

You know sometimes I feel like I,
I gave it my hardest try
Is anything left? I lost it on the last roller-coaster ride

When I get cold ?? This is what I say
When my baby asks; ??How was your day
I say grace

Took a rock from the garden I made here
In the backyard with a little love and some care
I come here when the world gets too crazy
I come here when I??m just feeling sad

We all need a place we can go where
You pick your dreams out of thin air
I work in this garden of faith every single day

continued below...

I say grace for the blue painted sky
I say grace for my lucky stars that shine
When I look back on the road that I??ve traveled down
I say grace for the love that I have found

Used to want to be at the top of the ladder
Even when you leap, you just come back down
When time gets a hold of my horses
I think I'll just laugh and go for the ride

Now while I look out my window
Where I planted my heart and my soul
It does a girl a world of good
To watch her garden grow - I

I say grace for the blue painted sky
I say grace for my lucky stars that shine
When I look back on the road that I??ve traveled down
I say grace

I've been through the hardest of seasons
Holding my heart in my hand
But every kind of thought has a reason

Hey Ms. Addie Chen B.

Thanks for all the lyrics.  And especially, thank you very much for listing the artists with the lyrics.

You might be interested to know that Both Sides Now was done by Joni Mitchell in 1969.

Reply #2 leungshuren's post

Hi, leungshuren,

Thank you for introducing Joni Mitchell to me. I've gathered much information about the world-famous
Canadian musician and maybe someday LT would deal with her wonderful country rock.

In my opinion, the  lyric "Both sides now" is not only poetic but also very philosophical, which easily made
me think of the ancient poem by Su Shi:

"From the side, a whole range; from the end, a single peak; Far, near, high, low--no two parts alike. Why can't I tell the true shape of Mountain Lu-shan. Because I am in the moutain.(《题西林壁》 横看成岭侧成峰,远近高低各不同。不识庐山真面目,只缘身在此山中。)

Is it similiar to the meaning that Joni Mitchell' s words have carried:

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

3> Prayer(祈祷)_a cover from Secret Garden

Let your arms enfold us
让你们的臂膀把我们围成一体
Through the dark of night
在无边的夜色中
Will your angels hold us
天使们呵,拥着我们
Till we see the light
直到天明

Hush, lay down your troubled mind
嘘,放下你焦虑的心思
The day has vanished and left us behind
一天已经过去,让我们退居幕后
And the wind - whispering soft lullabies
夜风吟唱着轻柔的摇篮曲
Will soothe - so close your eyes
安慰着我们,所以闭上眼睛吧

Let your arms enfold us
让你们的臂膀把我们围成一体
Through the dark of night
在无边的夜色中
Will your angels hold us
天使们呵,搂抱着我们
Till we see the light
直到天明

Sleep, angels will watch over you
睡吧,天使看护着我们
And soon beautiful dreams will come true
甜美的梦就要来临
Can you feel spirits embracing your soul
你没感觉到精灵们围绕着你的灵魂吗
So dream while secrets of darkness unfold
所以入梦吧,让夜的秘密自然展开

Let your arms enfold us
让你的臂膀把你我围成一体
Through the dark of night
在无边的夜色中
Will your angels hold us
天使们呵,搂抱着我们
Till we see the light
直到天明
